Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Defrauding the Government: True Tales of Smuggling From the Note-Book of a Confidential Agent of the United States Treasury Happy were men if they but understood There is no safety but in doing good. IT is no easy matter to hazard a guess why so many wealthy people smuggle. That it is a love of gain is no more certain than is the belief that these same daughters or sons of wealth defraud the Government because they just cannot help steal ing. And smuggling, to my mind, is a low form of theft. Deprived of their riches, some of these cheats of a great Government would be classed as common culprits, and doubtless many of them would end their days in some State s prison for pocket-picking, sneak thievery or some equally low-blooded crime. Money alone keeps many of them from committing these inferior offenses. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
